Taylor Allen

writer/executive producer Chappaquiddick; editor The Simpsons
Taylor Allen is a writer and an editor living in lovely Los Angeles, California. In 2015, Taylor co-wrote Chappaquiddick with his writing and producing partner Andrew Logan. The script earned them a spot on The Black List (and also got him blacklisted from some presumably wonderful Kennedy family soirees for which he was otherwise sure to have received an invitation). The script hurtled into production with John Curran (The Painted Veil) directing and Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Zero Dark Thirty), Ed Helms, Kate Mara, and Bruce Dern starring.

He also edits for The Simpsons which is, in fact, a weird process. Taylor graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Radio(?), Television, & Film…so needless to say he’s excited to return to the land of breakfast tacos.
